Coolsculpting vs. Lipo | Calabasas Medical Spa | Encino } Woodland HillsBoth CoolSculpting and liposuction seek to remove stubborn and undesirable fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. However, these two procedures use very different approaches to resolve the same problem.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Similar Treatment Goals

CoolSculpting and liposuction are both designed to achieved fat loss, but not weight loss. They are suitable only for people who are near or at their optimal weight and follow a balanced diet and exercise regimen.

CoolSculpting and liposuction can offer the patient the same outcomes as well, which is a slimmer, more toned physique which does not have unattractive bulges and love handles.

 

Different Treatment Approaches

Both procedures use completely different techniques to achieve the same body contouring and tightening outcomes. Liposuction is a surgical procedure where the surgeon manually eliminates the fatty tissue from the body through an incision on the skin. It involves the use of general anesthesia and a significant post-op recovery phase.

On the other hand, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive med spa treatment that does not involve sedation or incisions. Rather, the undesirable fat tissue is frozen. This tissue is slowly reabsorbed by the body through its natural processes. It is a safe and predictable treatment, and patients can immediately resume their normal activities.

Liposuction may create faster and more dramatic fat-loss outcomes in comparison to CoolSculpting. However, before considering liposuction, the patient should take into account the potential risks associated with surgery as well as the extended post-operative downtime.

 

Key Procedural Differences between CoolSculpting and Liposuction

Plastic surgeons have used liposuction as a traditional fat reduction technique for a number of years. The procedure involves the surgeon placing one or two tiny incisions on the skin near the treatment area and inserting a cannula (a thin, hollow tube).

They will then dislodge the targeted fat cells with a vibrating tip at the end of the cannula, and suction the fat deposits out through the cannula.

The patient undergoes this procedure under anesthesia. After the surgery, a majority of patients experience at least mild side effects such as inflammation and bruising and may need pain meds and antibiotics.

A typical liposuction procedure involves a recovery period of seven to ten days. Liposuction is sought-after and safe plastic surgery. But similar to any surgical procedure, it involves the risk of complications and major side effects.

CoolSculpting, on the other hand, freezes away fat in a safe and noninvasive manner. The CoolSculpting med spa treatment session involves drawing up the targeted fat cells between two panels. After that, the provider uses an applicator to deliver precise cooling to freeze the cells.

The undesirable fat cells die over the following three to four weeks and are reabsorbed by the body through its natural processes. CoolSculpting does not involve the use of incisions or anesthesia/sedation.

The time taken to complete the CoolSculpting procedure is around one hour. There is no post-treatment downtime. Therefore, patients can resume their normal routine immediately. It leaves the tissue surrounding the treatment area unharmed.

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared and an excellent option for people seeking to remove stubborn fatty pockets without the risk or downtime associated with an invasive surgical procedure.

What sets coolsculpting apart from other fat reduction technology? | CalabasasCoolSculpting is an innovative, noninvasive cosmetic treatment that uses the power of cooling to effectively freeze away undesirable fat.

This med spa procedure is excellent for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of extra fat on their abdomen, thighs, or unwanted love handles around their waist, and seek a completely non-invasive procedure to address these issues.   

CoolSculpting provides a revolutionary way to restore a slimmer, toned body shape without the involvement of anesthesia or incisions or experiencing uncomfortable side effects. Rather, CoolSculpting can remove stubborn fatty pockets and enhance the figure in a relaxed one-hour in-office session with no side effects or downtime.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities.

 

CoolSculpting vs. Traditional Fat Reduction Surgeries

Liposuction, breast reduction, and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) are some traditional surgical procedures to achieve dramatic fat loss. These procedures can create excellent outcomes and may be suitable for some patients. However, they are all invasive surgical treatments.

Similar to any surgery, fat-reduction surgeries also involve the use of sedation/anesthesia and relatively long procedure times. They are also associated with significant post-surgical discomfort and extended recovery durations.

While developments in medical technology have made these procedures quite safe, there still exists some level of risk of complications developing. These limitations of traditional fat reduction techniques outweigh the benefits for many people. These patients will usually derive the most benefit from CoolSculpting treatments.

CoolSculpting provides fat removal and body shaping enhancements that are similar to plastic surgery, but without many of the disadvantages of surgery. It does not involve the use of sedation or anesthesia and accomplishes fat reduction and toning without any significant incisions, traumatic suction, or injections.

CoolSculpting med spa treatment prevents damage to the surrounding tissue as it treats only the undesirable fatty tissues. This mitigates the risk of side effects. On top of this, it enables the patient to resume their normal activities almost immediately after the treatment.

 

CoolSculpting vs. Other Non-invasive Fat Reduction Procedures

Surgical procedures involve significant risks, expense, and recovery durations. Therefore, it is no surprise that doctors, as well as patients, have aggressively sought innovative and noninvasive techniques for fat reduction.

Treatments such as ultrasound laser and RF have been in use for a number of years to address stubborn fatty deposits that are unresponsive to diet and exercise.

Similar to CoolSculpting, these procedures also provide fat reduction and body contouring outcomes without the involvement of anesthesia, incisions, or injections and with minimal downtime.

But unlike CoolSculpting, these procedures use heat to melt away undesirable fat. Therefore, the patient faces the risk of burns, discomfort, pain, and other side-effects with these treatments.

On the other hand, CoolSculpting uses a cooling mechanism to freeze away fat. Therefore, it does not carry the risk of burns and potential complications related to heat-based procedures.

 

A Prudent Alternative

For patients who are unhappy with the appearance of stubborn fatty pockets that are unresponsive to diet and exercise, CoolSculpting presents a safe, noninvasive way to achieve a more toned, slimmer physique with minimal interruption to their busy lifestyle.

Vaginal Rejuvenation - Boosting Women’s Confidence in Yoga Pants | CalabasasThe American Society for Aesthetic Surgery indicates that an increasing number of women are choosing cosmetic med spa procedures to enhance the appearance of their genital area. In recent years, there has been a significant rise in non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment requests.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Comfort and Confidence while Wearing Body Hugging Clothes

One factor motivating women who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their labia is the desire to appear more attractive in athletic wear such as yoga pants.

Yoga pants fit very snugly, and the tight-fitting spandex pants can accentuate large or distended vaginal lips. It can also cause the patient to feel self-conscious as well as experience physical chafing and discomfort during physical activity.

 

New Grooming Trends

Grooming trends may influence the rising demand for nonsurgical vaginal and labial rejuvenation procedures. The vaginal area may be left visibly exposed accentuating the size and shape of the labia with popular waxing techniques such as the Brazilian bikini wax.

Women who were earlier secure about the shape and size of their vaginal lips may suddenly find themselves feeling embarrassed about their labial area. Some common complaints from women with elongated or enlarged labia minora are:

  • Uneasiness during exercise
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Feeling self-conscious about their appearance
  • Difficulty wearing athletic wear and swimsuits

 

Candidacy

Any woman is a candidate for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, regardless of whether the enlarged labia are the result of hormonal fluctuations, stretching during childbirth, or genetic reasons.

The treatment is minimally invasive and effectively tightens sagging or uneven labial tissue from the vaginal lips. The patient will undergo this procedure in-office under local anesthesia.

Not only do women undergoing the procedure not feel any pain, but they are also usually relaxed, chatting with the surgeon, watching a movie, or reading. In addition, the recovery period is minimal as well.

 

ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation

It is natural for the skin to become loose as the elastin and collagen levels reduce due to the natural process of aging. The skin starts to sag and loses its youthful suppleness.

Skin laxity impacts not only facial skin, but it may affect skin on any part of the body, especially in areas with delicate skin. This includes the skin on and around the vagina.  

An experienced vaginal rejuvenation med spa provider will use the skin tightening attributes of ThermiVa to firm and tighten the vaginal skin. This helps restore a tauter, more youthful, and aesthetically appealing appearance in a nonsurgical manner.

 

How does it Work?

ThermiVa offers patients a safe skin tightening treatment that does not involve incisions. This treatment is gentle enough for the fragile skin of the vagina. However, it still creates dramatic skin tightening outcomes.

The patient undergoes the 20-minute ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation session comfortably and discreetly on an outpatient basis. It does not involve any post-treatment downtime.

 

ThermiVa Benefits

ThermiVa offers the following key benefits:

  • It stimulates the existing collagen and elastin fibers and instantly tightens and lifts the skin in the treatment site.
  • The collagen will continue to regenerate over the next few months and patients will experience the long-term skin firming outcomes of their ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation procedure.
  • ThermiVa uses cutting-edge technology that features an integrated skin-cooling mechanism that prevents the skin from burning and ensures that patients remain comfortable during and following their session.

A majority of patients attain excellent vaginal skin tightening outcomes with three ThermiVa treatment sessions. But the patient’s level of skin laxity will determine the number of sessions that they require.

Does Microneedling Hurt? | Los Angeles | San Fernando | CalabasasFor many patients, the sensation of microneedling is akin to mild sunburn. But an experienced med spa treatment provider may use a topical product to numb the treatment site before starting the procedure.

Therefore, the patient is not likely to experience any pain during the treatment. If there is any discomfort, it will resolve in a few days. Pinpoint bleeding, mild inflammation, and redness are some side effects of the treatment.

In microneedling, the depth of the needle penetration is more significant than the needle’s size. The depth is important as the needles must go through the skin to create micro-wounds. This stimulates collagen production to enable skin healing. For this reason, microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by the kind Dr. Bijan Farah, provides microneedling and other aesthetic procedures to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other towns and communities in this area of The Golden State.

Variation in Discomfort

In performing microneedling on aging skin, a needle which is 0.5 to 1.0 mm is usually employed. With 0.5 mm length needles, the patient experiences very little discomfort. As the needle length increases, the pain perception also increases as it penetrates the skin more deeply. Some needles can even be 3.0 mm in length.

The med spa treatment provider examines the patient’s skin type and tone closely to establish an appropriate needle length for their unique requirements.

The number of passes the microneedling provider uses during the procedure is another factor that impacts post-treatment pain or the duration of the treatment. The speed of certain derma pens is adjustable.  

The patient may experience some mild inflammation or redness during the recovery period, especially those with sensitive skin. However, almost all patients report high satisfaction levels with the final outcomes.

After the procedure, patients experience a reduction in fine lines, softening of acne scars, the production of new collagen, and better absorption of skincare products that are applied to the skin after microneedling.

Key Questions about Microneedling

How many treatment sessions will I require?

Single treatments are available to patients. However, the best outcomes are achieved with a series of three treatments that are ideally spaced six weeks apart. These intervals enable the skin to recover through exfoliation, cell turnover, and maturation.

The patient can go for up to eight weeks between sessions and a minimum interval of five weeks would be needed between microneedling sittings.

It is vital to understand that skin remodeling is not instantaneous, and the process occurs over 12 months and beyond.

What do I need to do after the procedure?

The patient needs to treat their skin kindly and protect it. The patient should diligently use an effective sun-block during the course, avoid direct sun for two weeks after the procedure, and refrain from exfoliating their skin for at least a week.

The recovery process varies for every patient, but in general, the patient should be gentle with their skin and protect it throughout the treatment series.

Who cannot undergo microneedling?

Microneedling is a very safe treatment, but it may be unsuitable for the following people:

  • Pregnant or nursing women
  • People prone to keloid scarring which is an overgrowth of tissue when healing
  • Individuals with uncontrolled diabetes as it can interfere with wound healing
  • Areas with warts, infection, or skin cancers
  • People using blood-thinners or high dose corticosteroids or oral retinoids

Microneedling Before and After Photos | Los Angeles | San FernandoMicroneedling can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun spots, and other skin imperfections safely and effectively. Furthermore, it enhances the penetration of topical skin rejuvenation products to create beautiful, more youthful looking skin.

The microneedling med spa treatment provider will provide the patient information on various aspects of the procedure during the initial consultation. They may present microneedling before and after pictures of past patients as well.

The first goal of a dedicated provider will be to offer the patient details on the advantages and limitations of microneedling to allow them to make a well-informed decision.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides microneedling and other aesthetic procedures to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities across the landscape.

What are Microneedling Before and After Pictures?

Microneedling before and after photos refers to a pair or group of pictures of previous patients who have achieved excellent outcomes with this treatment. These images include pictures that were taken before and after the procedure at multiple stages of the treatment and highlight the final results of the procedure.

The microneedling med spa treatment provider will take these photos with the consent of the patient and will show them to prospective patients in a discreet manner.

The only reason that the provider displays these pictures is to enable the prospective patient to gauge the potential results of microneedling. This allows new patients to form reasonable expectations from microneedling and be able to make rational choices.

During the consultation these pictures can possibly be seen. They are not currently on the website like so many other salient before and after pictures of this established clinic. This is why all patients should ask to see before and after pictures of their particular treatment they are seeking so they have a strong visual aid of the treatment they are contemplating signing up for.

Advantages

Individuals seeking an advanced skin procedure such as microneedling may have concerns about its outcomes and ability to enhance their skin’s appearance. Some patients need only minor treatment to rejuvenate their skin or mitigate fine lines and wrinkles while others may need a more detailed procedure to address skin that is significantly loose or sagging.

It is quite understandable for new patients to be confused or unsure regarding the selection of a suitable skin rejuvenation procedure as well as an appropriate treatment level. The microneedling provider can help the patient make a salient decision at this point by showcasing microneedling before and after photos. This is why consultations are vital.

Developing Realistic Expectations

During the pre-treatment consultation, an expert provider will display microneedling before and after pictures to the patient to enable them to develop reasonable expectations from the procedure. Patients with realistic expectations typically achieve higher satisfaction levels and are not disappointed with the microneedling results.

Digital Pictures on Instagram

The microneedling provider may display digital versions of microneedling before and after pictures on their website as well as disseminate them through Instagram but for microneedling and for this clinic this is not the case as already mentioned. This profound website offers some of the other impressive work that this clinic has completed for this particular treatment but these pictures will have to be seen during the consultation which is necessary anyways before any type of treatment is provided.  

Microneedling ‘before and after’ photos are even more compelling as slideshows. The microneedling specialist can use Instagram Stories and other innovative features to provide patients with more information on the procedure.

Pictures are More Expressive than Words

Microneedling ‘before and after’ pictures can be more convincing to the patient than mere words. Words are open to interpretation and at times, incredulous. On the other hand, pictures are not constrained by language and do not tell an untrue story. However, the provider should ensure that the images are not modified or photo-shopped as these can mislead the patient.

The adage, “A picture is worth a thousand words” is certainly true for before and after pictures of cosmetic procedures such as microneedling. Respected Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for microneedling.

How much does microneedling cost? | Los Angeles | Encino | CalabasasMicroneedling is a safe and proven skin enhancement med spa procedure for people who want to lessen the facial signs of aging, sun damage, and various other skin imperfections without having to undergo cosmetic surgery.

During the pre-op consultation, the treatment provider will explain different aspects of the procedure to the patient, including its approximate costs. The first goal of a dedicated provider will be to assist the patient to make the right decision according to their needs and budget.

The patient should feel free to ask questions related to the costs as well as other factors. Microneedling is usually performed as an elective cosmetic procedure, which means insurance will not cover this treatment.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides microneedling to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

Dollar Amount Comparison

A microneedling med spa treatment will be less expensive than a plastic surgery procedure such as a facelift. Surgical procedures often involve cost compoents such as the surgeon’s fee, general anesthesia costs, surgical room costs, and other pre and post-operative expenses.

Microneedling, on the other hand, is an outpatient procedure that can be administered in-office. It involve almost none of the major cost components that are inherent to plastic surgery.

Some patients want to understand the difference between the prices of microneedling and other non-surgical procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion, IPL, chemical peels, and facial filler injectables.

Many of the non-invasive treatments may be more expensive than microneedling, and in any case they may not offer similar outcomes. These aspects make it important for the patient to assess their skin condition, financial budget, and cosmetic goals before making a final selection.

Price Tag Variations

Microneedling procedure may be performed independently or in conjunction with another non-surgical treatment. Patients can choose the right combination in consultation with the treatment provider. Sometimes PRP rejuvenation may be combined with microneedling.

The choice of the procedure depends on the extent of the skin imperfections that need to be addressed. The number of treatment sessions involved and the size of the treatment areas may also differ between patients.

The patient who requires 2 to 3 treatment sessions may have to pay less than a patient who needs 5 to 6 treatments to meet their cosmetic needs.

The location of the practice can influence the monetary amount of microneedling treatment. Practices based in busy metropolitan areas or main urban centers often have to bear a higher real estate cost burden and greater overheads in comparison to practices in small, interior towns.

The customized care, quality standards, type of equipment and technology, adherence to the latest safety protocols, and a top qualified support team will impact the overall cost of microneedling treatment to some extent.

During the pre-op consultation, the patient should ask questions about costs and make the best decision after comparing the potential costs and benefits with other med spa treatment options.

Financing

Patients may discuss with the treatment provider or their team for information on their payment options. Patients will mostly qualify for third-party financing by healthcare financing firms at competitive rates of interest and easy payment terms.

Microneedling

iStock_000009829237SmallMicroneedling is an advanced med spa procedure which helps rejuvenate and renew skin in a natural way. In comparison to other skin resurfacing techniques, microneedling provides a milder and more natural way to achieve youthful, brighter skin.

It enhances the skin’s inherent ability to produce collagen and elastin. New collagen fibers help the skin heal and rejuvenate from within.

Microneedling can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, acne scars, and other skin aberrations in a safe and effective manner. It also increases the penetration of topical skin rejuvenation products to offer the patient dazzling and more youthful skin.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by the prudent Dr. Bijan Farah, provides microneedling to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

Choosing Microneedling

People with the following characteristics may be ideal candidates for microneedling med spa treatment:

  • Individuals seeking non-ablative and laser free treatments for skin resurfacing
  • Persons with multiple skin concerns such as uneven skin tone, acne scars, and enlarged pores simultaneously
  • Persons seeking to improve the appearance of aging signs via a procedure that does not involve injections
  • Individuals with darker skin tones making laser treatments less suitable for them
  • Persons with a preference for procedures that prompt skin improvement from within rather than superficial treatments

Key Insights

  • Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). It is an FDA-approved treatment for mitigating signs of aging and other skin conditions.
  • This procedure prompts skin renewal and rejuvenation from within offering the patient thicker skin while reducing the appearance of stretch marks, acne scars, and wrinkles.
  • The procedure does not involve injections, incisions or downtime.
  • Microneedling is mostly performed for facial skin rejuvenation. However, it can be effectively performed on any part of the body.
  • This procedure is safe for almost all skin tones and types.

Targeted Sites for Microneedling

Microneedling typically targets the following conditions on facial skin:

  • Acne scars
  • Sun spots (also known as “age spots”)
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Enlarged pores
  • Other types of scars
  • Skin elasticity loss
  • Irregular skin tone

Microneedling is also used to address stretch marks in various areas of the body in addition to treating facial skin issues.

According to one study, microneedling successfully reduced the appearance of stretch marks on the abdomen and thighs when used in combination with dermal fillers. Microneedling can also treat scarring on other areas of the body. But this treatment is usually administered on facial skin.

Minimal Discomfort

Microneedling is a quick procedure that does not involve any downtime. The patient experiences minimal discomfort during the microneedling procedure. The skin will look reddish or feel taut, warm, and rough in the initial three to seven days after the procedure.

The microneedling provider will typically use a topical hydrating agent on the skin around one hour before the session to make sure that the patient remains comfortable during the treatment.

How long does Coolsculpting last?

B&A-Mayoral-AB-3Set-24wk-3Q-LoResCoolSculpting has become increasingly accepted in recent years as one of the safest and most effective med spa body contouring treatments available to women as well as men.

But many new patients may still have concerns regarding how effectively CoolSculpting can remove undesirable fatty deposits and whether the outcomes will sustain for a long time.

CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, killing them at very low temperatures. This helps achieve body contouring results without the involvement of any incisions, cuts, needles, or medications. This innovative and entirely non-invasive procedure can cause some patients to question the sustainability of CoolSculpting outcomes.

During the pre-treatment consultation, the treatment provider will inform the patients on all facets of CoolSculpting and explain the potential sustainability of the results to them.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by the prudent Dr. Bijan Farah, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities in this part of SoCal.

Treatment Delivery

FDA-cleared CoolSculpting is a patented treatment that eliminates stubborn fat cells through its unique freezing technique. The patient will be comfortable and relaxed during the in-office treatment while the CoolSculpting applicator freezes the fat cells to their death in precise areas of the body.

The time taken to complete one CoolSculpting med spa session is nearly 40 minutes with the latest applicators. This makes CoolSculpting an ideal treatment for professionals and busy moms. CoolSculpting does not involve downtime, and the patient can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment session.

Sustainable Outcomes

The cells frozen with CoolSculpting will slowly start crystallizing and die. Over the next few weeks, they will be removed from the body through its natural processes. Patients usually experience a visible difference in their body contours after just a single treatment. However, a progressive fat reduction will require multiple CoolSculpting sessions.

A majority of patients can achieve around 20 percent fat reduction in the treatment areas. Patients typically enjoy optimal outcomes with CoolSculpting at around two to four months.

Permanent Fat Reduction

Harvard scientists developed the unique cooling process that is used in CoolSculpting. After the applicator exposes the fat cells to very low temperatures in a controlled manner, the fat cells freeze and slowly break down. Consequently, the patient loses fat in a natural manner. The dead fat cells are absorbed by the body due to natural metabolic processes.

Adults are not capable of growing new fat cells. This implies that after the fat cells are removed with CoolSculpting, they cannot re-grow.

This leads to a permanent reduction in fat as the fat cells are eliminated forever. But patients must understand that CoolSculpting cannot replace diet and exercise. The treatment eliminates only around 20 percent of the fat cells.

The residual fat cells can still grow bigger and impact the contours of the body if the patient gains excessive weight. Therefore, patients should focus on remaining within their ideal weight range during CoolSculpting and after the treatment to enjoy its benefits for many years to come.

Get Rid of Fat on Your Thighs With Coolsculpting

B&A-Stevens-INTH-2Set-8wk-LoResCoolSculpting is an advanced med spa procedure that has received FDA-clearance for cosmetic body contouring. It is designed to provide non-surgical reduction of fat in particular areas of the body.

In this process, the fat is frozen away with CoolSculpting’s unique process called cryolipolysis. Patients do not receive any cuts or incisions, and the procedure does not require any needles or medications, making CoolSculpting a safe and minimal risk procedure.

Among the areas that CoolSculpting can successfully treat are the inner and outer thighs. CoolSculpting can provide these sites with a sleeker lower body appearance. In general, stubborn fat deposits usually develop in the thigh area.

These deposits can be challenging to eliminate with diet and exercise alone. For patients seeking fat reduction in the inner and outer thighs, CoolSculpting can help.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

FDA-Cleared for Thigh Fat Reduction

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq received FDA-clearance in 2014 for the elimination of fat in the inner and outer thighs. Once this clearance was obtained, the manufacturer Zeltiq began promoting this procedure as an effective non-surgical solution for the removal of stubborn fatty deposits in the inner and outer thigh.

Zeltiq stated that patients could achieve 20 to 25 percent reduction in fat deposits in the thighs within three months with this med spa treatment.

During the trials by the FDA, almost 86 percent of patients reported a noticeable decrease in their thigh fat within a period of four months following the CoolSculpting treatment. The time taken for one CoolSculpting session is around 45 minutes.

At a given time, one inner or outer thigh can receive treatment. The patient may require multiple treatment sessions to accomplish desired outcomes.

An increasing number of patients nowadays seek the “thigh gap.” CoolSculpting is a popular treatment among people who want the appearance of a gap between their inner thighs.

Both treatment providers and patients alike offer positive feedback for CoolSculpting as an effective nonsurgical treatment to address thigh fat. CoolSculpting delicately eliminates fat causing low to no downtime and discomfort unlike aggressive procedures such as liposuction or lasers.

How does it Work?

Fat cells located in the inner thighs, as well as other fat tissue sites, are more susceptible to damage at very low temperatures in comparison to other cells as well as nerves and blood vessels in the vicinity. CoolSculpting targets these cells precisely causing the selective elimination of undesirable fat cells through a process known as apoptosis.

These dead fat cells will gradually break down and be absorbed by the body through the natural metabolic process. This enables the patient to enjoy sleeker, more youthful and natural looking inner and outer thighs.

CoolFit Applicator

The treatment provider generally uses a specialized CoolFit applicator to perform customized elimination of fat in the thighs. Some patients may need two applicators on each side according to the distribution of the fat. The treatment provider will usually place the second applicator toward the back of the inner thigh for overall contour enhancement.

Cold plasma is colder than lasers and, as a result, involves minimal risk of damage to the treated tissue. These elements of cold plasma make it a treatment of choice for many patients today who want to minimize their risk, discomfort, and downtime for body sculpting.

Candidacy

Renuvion body lift and skin tightening procedure may be best suited for people who have mild to moderate loose skin. Their skin laxity and uneven body contours could have occurred due to aging or significant weight loss.

Some candidates may have previously receive liposuction surgery or other non-surgical body contouring procedures, and may be looking for additional toning, sculpting, or tightening.  

Procedure

Renuvion body lift med spa procedure can be completed in about one to two hours. The treatment provider will use local anesthesia to numb the affected sites, and place small incisions. Through the incisions, they will apply the Renuvion device sub-dermally to deliver cold plasma energy into the targeted tissue layers.

This will instantly shrink, tighten and firm the tissue from within. Patients can notice the benefits of this treatment almost immediately, but the effects will continue to improve over time. The tissue stimulation with cold plasma energy will trigger the production of new collagen fibers for smoother, volumized skin, and more sustainable and natural looking results.

Recovery

Most patients can return to their normal routine or go back to work in about two to three days. They can resume their fitness regimen and exercise in about three weeks. The provider may prescribe a few pain meds initially to keep the patient comfortable after the treatment.

The treated areas of the body will continue to remodel over the next several months for more youthful results.
